Just as a matter of interest, I wrote a piece about the corporate angle on surveillance for the latest edition of Index on Censorship. It's not directly on topic, though part of the reason I wrote it was that it seems to me that human rights activists focus too much on government action and ignore what corporations are doing, and the interaction between the two. Sadly it's not available online yet, though the issue can be found here:

Should we really trust "good" state-level actors with our anti-censorship efforts? And might it divert resources from established anonymity projects, like Tor, I2I, Freenet, etc.
